Japanese Holly - Upright (Ilex crenata Schwoebel)

An upright evergreen grower in the Japanese holly family. His narrow form makes him great to use for your privacy hedge. A perfect alternative to Buxus (English Box etc). The small leaves are rounded, dark green and glossy, very similar in appearance to Buxus. Resistance to pests and diseases and grows well on all but heavy soils. Makes a handsome topiary specimen.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: My upright dense form is best for hedges and screening. Dense, all-year-round rich green bush, natural pyramidal habit without the need to trim, grows well in most garden conditions, an excellent choice for coastal gardens, trouble-free and always attractive.

    I grow to: 2.5m high, 2m wide 

    Where to place me: I like to live in an area with full sun to light shade. 

    Soil conditions: Any, clay, loam, sandy, well-drained.

    Watering:  Water regularly when young (it won’t wilt to tell you it is in trouble), but once established it is drought resistant.

    My features: I am drought, wind, salt and frost tolerant.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Growing
  • How to water me
    I am very forgiving and don't need too much water.  A good rule of thumb is to give me a drink when my soil starts to dry out. Rainfall can often be sufficient for me after I have settled in 

    Soil PH
    I will do my best with a soil PH level between 5.5-6.5, you can read more about the importance of PH levels here  

    Tips and tricks
    To keep me dense and compact give me a little trim late Winter, early Spring before new growth begins to help with my look. I will also appreciate a feed around this time. Feed with blood and bone in spring, take great care transplanting - they really don't like it.

  • Delivery
  • Once your new plant babes are dispatched you will receive tracking information so you can keep an eye on its journey. Once in transit, packages usually take 2-10 business days to arrive. If you need it delivered ASAP we recommend upgrading to express post to get it there faster. 

    So your babes arrive in the best condition we hold off shipping if there is an upcoming public holiday or crazy weather event. We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants, and fast, free delivery to your door.
